    Default Anti-Vortex Drain covers

    Anyone know the date that Anti-Vortez/Suction Relief drains became required in Florida?

    I believe it was 2001. I couldn't find it in the 2004 code, but it should be in section 424. I am sure Jerry has the 2001 code.

    If I see a pool without one and it is older, I always recommend that at some point, an anti-vortex cover should be installed. Also, in some instances, when a pool gets re-marcited, they don't change the cover. I write those up as in need of replacement.

    I still get paid to be suspicious when I got nothing to be suspicious about!

    My recollection is back in the 90s. I have, back at my home office, the NSPI standards for swimming pools, forgot what year of issue they are, I think 1995, which (if I remember correctly) has them in there. May have even been required before then.

    However, as Eric said (in different words) the pool does not know nor care what year it was constructed, it still has the same deadly suction on it for those who tempt fate by playing with the suction drains.
